PostSubject: Friendship   Sun Jul 06, 2008 8:38 am

Two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything wrote in the sand ~ Today my best friend slapped me in the face.

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning but the friend saved him.
After he recovered from the near-drowning, he wrote on a stone ~ Today my best friend saved my life.

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone. Why?"

The other friend replied: "When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.

LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND AND YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE

you know I read one time :
there was this old indian man talking to the young indian boy..The boy asked : what is the difference between good and evil..The old man said: good is such things as love, happiness, and joy..and evil or bad: is greed and jealiousy
The little boy sat there in wonder and said to the old man: which will win?
The old man replied: THE ONE THAT YOU FEED.
